LONGMEADOW — Senator Eric P. Lesser and Representative Brian M. Ashe welcomed Longmeadow breakfast staple Alex’s Bagel Shop to its new location on Tuesday.
Alex’s Bagel Shop is celebrating its grand (re)-opening after moving from its previous address on Williams Street, where it had been for about 50 years, to 398 Longmeadow St.
“We are so happy here in Longmeadow that, even though Alex’s Bagel Shop is moving, it is staying in Longmeadow! This family-owned business has a long history here, and we are glad that this history with our Town will continue. Our local businesses are the backbone of our economy, and we are grateful for their contributions to our communities,” said Sen. Lesser.
“I am thrilled Alex’s Bagel Shop has been able to remain in Longmeadow. The town, as well as the surrounding community, have enjoyed their food for many years and it has become a regular stop for many. Small, local businesses are the cornerstone of our economy and Alex’s Bagels is a perfect example of how a local business becomes a valuable part of a community,” said Rep. Ashe.
